The Sakana II surf spin combo is the ideal beach combo that can handle casting lures and baits up to 130g way out into the sweet spots. For a beach rod it's quite thin and light, making it incredibly easy to handle and lightweight in comparison to most other beach rod styles. The reel is ideal for beach fishing as well, the 8000 size holds more than enough line for any style of beach fishing, both mono and braid.
All of the new Shimano Sentire Sakana II combos are high quality combos designed and built in collaboration with Tackle World and Shimano pro anglers to suit a wide range of Australian conditions. They're a far better than average quality outfit at a very affordable price.
The Rod - Shimano Sentire Sakana II 1202 5-10kg 2pce Rod
As I said, the Shimano Sentire Sakana II 1202 is ideal for beach fishing. It can be used effectively for both bait and lures due to both its composition and action. It's length allows a super long cast and ensures your line is up and out of the waves as much as possible so you know when the fish are biting and can set the hooks in time.
It's built on a high quality 24 ton Toray graphite blank, which is lightweight, super responsive and very sensitive to vibrations so you don't miss a bite.
The guides are the latest tangle-free Fuji Fazlite K Frame guides: strong, super smooth and durable.
The butt section is a custom EVA split butt built for comfort and performance especially when working lures and soft plastics.
It has a medium-fast taper which is ideal to suit a bigger mix of fishing types. This means when the rod is loaded up i.e. a fish is on, the rod bends in the top half/third of the rod, giving it plenty of sensitivity and action up the light end, but still holding a lot of power down the bottom of the rod so you can fight bigger fish with no dramas.

The Reel - Shimano Sedona FI 8000 Reel
The Shimano Sedona FI Reels are similar to the rod, quality at an affordable price.
They've literally stepped up a gear from their previous models, with the addition of Shimano's Hagane gear - a cold-forged gear that's stronger, lighter and smoother than the standard machine-cut gears.
4 ball bearings ensure smooth operations and and long lasting performance.
11kg of drag gives you plenty of stopping power so you can handle the odd big salmon run or a jewfish that just took your bait.
The 4.9:1 gear ratio is relatively average for a bigger beach style reel which are typically slower, but because of their spool size they still retrieve quite a bit of line per crank so it's not a hassle getting your line back in.
